The company was founded as Shenhua Group in 1995 by the Chinese government, and it was the first Chinese company to be listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.

In 2005, Shenhua Group spun off its coal production business and established China Shenhua Energy Company Limited as a separate entity. On August 15, China Shenhua Energy became a constituent of the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index. On November 7, 2007, Hang Seng Index Services Company announced that China Shenhua would have been Hang Seng Index Constituent Stock since December 10 of that year.

The company also has investments in coal-related projects, such as coal-to-liquids, coal-to-chemicals and coal-to-gas projects.

In September 2009, Shenhua announced that over four years they will invest US$39.5 billion in coal to increase their production. In September 2010, the company agreed to an extensive cooperation contract with Mitsui & Co., encompassing shipping, overseas mine development, coal usage and chemical manufacturing. In December 2010, Shenhua invested $2 billion in the construction of a railway; financing 35% with its own capital. In July 2011, Shenhua acquired a 40% stake in Mongolia's biggest coal project, with a Russian syndicate controlling 36% and Peabody Energy owning the remaining 24%.

Over the years, CSEC has continued to expand its operations and investments. The company has made investments in rail, port and power plant construction, as well as in overseas coal mines. CSEC has also developed a large-scale integrated energy supply system, which includes coal, electricity, coal-based chemicals and related services.
